Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy automobiles introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel purchased Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially intended for children and young adults, so they’ve become popular with mature lovers, such as limited edition models are now made available.
Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Though it would be updated during time, the first track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using one (or two) “super walkers” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars along the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are collected mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the ordinary collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting craze began with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the autumn. The conference happened in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since then, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
